Awful news from Anaheim where, after Game 2 of the ALDS on Friday, a fan was severely beaten in the parking lot:

The 43-year-old Huntington Beach man and his relative were walking to a car after the Angels’ playoff game against the Kansas City Royals Friday night when they were attacked for no apparent reason, Lt. Bob Dunn said Sunday.

Witnesses alerted Anaheim police officers of the incident, and police found the victim unconscious. He was rushed to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.

Leanne Suter of ABC 7 in Los Angeles reports that the victim was a veteran LAPD officer.

The Angels say they had more security than usual for the playoff game.
